Angers vs Metz: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips-28 January 2017

Angers vs Metz
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 28 January, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin, Angers.

This is yet another battle-for-relegation match in the 22nd round of Ligue 1. Neither Angers nor Metz can afford a failure here which is why we can expect a great tension on the pitch from the very first whistle. Angers have been winless in last nine league matches and the latest of the failures came last Saturday when they suffered a 2-1 away defeat to Saint-Etienne. The head-coach Stephane Moulin has had huge troubles with the defensive line since the start of the season. The team conceded at least two goals in three of their last four home matches.

Metz, on the other side, opened the year in a fantastic way. Les Grenats managed to keep clean sheets in consecutive Ligue 1 matches with Nice and Montpellier taking four points which helped them to escape the foot of the league table. Philippe Hinschberger will be hoping to see his team finally finding the net in the away match since Metz failed to score a single goal in last six away fixtures.

Angers vs Metz: Head-to-Head Stats

Draw has been the most common of the outcomes in head to head clashes happening five times in 11 matches. Angers took their last win over Metz back in December 2011 when the teams played the second-class football. Metz were better in the first game of the season when Fallete and Milan were on target in a 2 – 0 win back in August last year.

Angers vs Metz: Prediction

The hosts side will be going into this match thinking this is their best chance to put an end to their four-match win-less streak at home. Despite not winning their home matches, Angers have been solid at home as they lost just twice in the last 9. Metz have struggled to find goals in away matches this season. They have failed to score in their last 6 away matches, losing 5 during the period. Angers could benefit from this and we might probably see a 1-0 score-line at the end of 90 minutes.
